2021 Gold Cup betting – Al Boum Photo 6/1 to land hat-trick

Al Boum Photo 2020 Gold Cup Cheltenham Festival

Al Boum Photo crosses the line after retaining his Gold Cup crown in 2020.

2021 Gold Cup betting. Unibet make Al Boum Photo the 6/1 favourite to complete a hat-trick of Gold Cup wins at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.

Al Boum Photo became the first horse since Best Mate to retain his Gold Cup crown at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. Like the previous season, Willie Mullins’ star came into the race on the back of a solitary victory at Tramore. Paul Townend’s mount traveled sweetly throughout the race, hitting the front with two to travel. Lostintranslation and Santini came with powerful late charges, but the defending champion wasn’t for passing.

In the immediate aftermath of the race, Unibet made Al Boum Photo their 6/1 favourite for the 2021 Gold Cup. Santini proved his doubters wrong with a fine second, and he sits closest behind Al Boum Photo in the betting, with Unibet offering a price of 7/1.

Santini’s stablemate, Champ came from the clouds to beat Minella Indo in the 2020 RSA Chase. Despite Nicky Henderson’s stayer getting the upper-hand that day, Unibet cannot split the pair in the 2021 Gold Cup betting, listing both at 10/1. Lostintranslation, who ran a cracker to place third considering how poorly Colin Tizzards’ horses performed during the 2020 Festival, can also be found on a price of 10/1.

Samcro bounced back to top form with a hard-fought victory in the Marsh Novices’ Chase, and Unibet is offering 14/1 on Gordon Elliott’s charge to win the Cheltenham Festival’s showpiece event next season.

Monalee and Delta Work, who stayed on well for fourth and fifth respectively behind Al Boum Photo, can be found at 20/1 to in the 2021 Gold Cup betting with Unibet. RSA third, Allaho is also a 20/1 shot, with 2019 RSA winner, Topofthegame a general 25/1 shot.

The top two from the 2020 Arkle, Put The Kettle On and Fakir D’Oudairies enter the 2021 Gold Cup betting on 33/1. Another name you’ll see crop up in the 2020 Cheltenham Festival results, Imperial Aura and Kemboy, who was well beaten in this year’s main event, can also be found at 33/1 in Unibet’s 2021 Gold Cup betting.
